In another controversial statement, Georgia GOP Senate nominee Herschel Walker has further raised concerns about his candidacy after making false claims about climate change.

In his statement during a campaign rally, Walker suggested that polluted air can be exchanged for air in North America. He further suggested that China is stealing America’s clean air and replacing it with their polluted air.

“Since we don’t control the air, our good air decided to float over to China’s bad air. So when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move. So it moves over to our good air space. Then – now we got we to clean that back up.”

In November, Walker will be running against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Georgia).
